Here’s a recap of MDU’s Round 3 streets of Detroit….yes in the streets! Such an awesome and unique video to go along with such an amazing event. Props to everyone who made this happen. Looking forward to more videos from Sam Greene and Eamon Queeney
Found this on Jalonik today. Afroduck is our hero.
“JALOPNIK: Why publish your video so close to when you performed the run? Other drivers waited over a year to release their footage, if ever.
AFRODUCK: You frankly can’t identify who I am by just looking at the video and records were meant to be broken. I’ll release my name a year from now.
J: How did you prepare for the run?
AD: Other than my car being stocked, I went out various times throughout the night to figure out the traffic patter[n]s.
J: What was your hairiest moment during the lap?
AD: None, I was always in control. In fact, this wasn’t the first time I broke the record. I can do it consistently under 24 minutes and most likely beat my own record again.
J: What would you say to someone considering an attempt on breaking your record?
AD: Go ahead. Just watch out for the speeding tickets.
J: What do you say to someone calling your driving dangerous and extremely reprehensible?
AD: Whether you['re] a good driver or not, when you’re on the road, you have a high chance of getting hit by a drunk driver, being cut off (especially in NY), etc. Being a good driver, you’re more aware of what is around you. Being a fast driver doesn’t mean that you’re inherently a bad or reckless driver. Like I said before, I’m in control. That said, understand traffic patterns, understand what’s around you and understand how others control or don’t control their cars.”
